pertain to the ecclesiastical jurisdiction, draws the bailiffs in plea in court 
christian before him, and has caused sentence of excommunication to be 
fulminated against them, in order that he may thus usurp to himself what 
has hitherto been the king's ; since pleas of feudalities (feodalibus) and 
liberties of feudalities and of secular things whatsoever granted by the king 
or his progenitors to persons or dignities are and have been wont to be of the 
king's jurisdiction, and the king is prepared to do justice to the archbishop 
if he or his men wish to complain of the said bailiffs, he prohibits the 
archbishop from drawing the bailiff in plea before him concerning the 
premises by any sentences or ecclesiastical coercions, because such pleas 
pertain to the king's crown and dignity, and he orders him to cause any 
sentences promulgated against the bailiffs to be revoked without delay.

Certain statutes made by the king and his council in co. Westmoreland. The 
king of England, who has to' guard and govern the [peace] and the 
people, wills and commands that his peace shall be common to all men 
who are of the peace, and as to the complaints that were made to him 
lately when he was in the county of Westmerilaund, and in order to avoid the 
grievances made heretofore by assemblies and congregations that the sheriff 
calls his tourn, which he makes more often in the year than is necessary, 
of four men and the reeve of every town in divers places, without the 
authority and warrant of the king, that is to say in Kendale and elsewhere in 
Westmerilaund, the king wills and commands that the sheriff shall henceforth 
make one tourn and no more in the year ; that is to say that in Kendale 
and elsewhere in Westmerilaund four men and the reeve shall come from 
each town once a year at a certain day after Easter and at a certain place, 
to wit at Kirkeby in Kendale or at Kirkeby in Lounesdale, before the 
sheriff and coroners to do what pertains to keeping the peace in those 
parts, to wit to indict outlaws, thieves, felons, evildoers, and receivers in 
the same manner as the king does elsewhere in his realm. And the 
king wills that the other towns of Westmerilaund shall come at 
certain days in another certain place or to two certain places most con- 
venient and least grievous for them. And the king wills that the statute 
shall be kept aright concerning persons indicted and other evil doers, 
robbers and thieves, as it is kept elsewhere in the realm. Concerning the 
complaints of grievances done to the people by Serjeants by power of 
their bailiwick and by abusing their power in the same county, the king 
wills and commands that no loyal man shall be aggrieved by attachment 
or by fine, as has been done heretofore. And if any loyal man shall be 
taken or attached or aggrieved by attachment or otherwise so that he will 
not make fine with them to avoid their malice, his neighbours who know 
him to be good and loyal may have him under plevin until the sheriff and 
coroners know by general inquisition if the Serjeants have grieved him 
wrongly or rightly, and there shall be done concerning him what shall be 
found by the inquisition and according to the statute. And those who 
have maliciously aggrieved him shall be punished according to the statute. 
The king, however, does not intend by this that the Serjeants shall lose 
their power to take and attach thieves and other notorious and known 
evildoers and their receivers, and those who by the testimony of approved 
men are bound to evil deeds (mauveis). 

And to avoid the grievances and evils that the sheriff or their Serjeants 
have done to the towns of the same county by summoning them too 
frequently, and otherwise travailing them to be at the delivery of prisons 
and gaols, and by taking fines and amercements from them for such reasons 
grievously at the will of the sheriffs and their Serjeants, the king wills that 
henceforth no delivery of such prisons or gaols shall be made by the 
sheriffs or by the Serjeants without the king's writ of gaol-delivery, or 
other writ according to what is used in the realm. 

The king wills that henceforth the sheriff or his Serjeants shall not take 
fine for delivering such prisoners, because by the taking of such fines the 
loyal people have been much aggrieved and the thieves much encouraged 
(regnez). And moreover the king wills that when the men of the county 
ought to be amerced, the amercements shall be taxed in full county by 
good and lawful men, as ought to be done and according to the statute, 
and not at the will of the sheriff or his Serjeants.

For the rest, the king wills that women-brewers (braceresses) in that 
county may not for one amercement brew and sell all the year contrary to the 
assize and to their profit and to the damage of the people, but that they 
shall be punished according to the award of the county [court], as is done 
elsewhere in the realm. French. [Ryley, Placita, p. 443.]

fifteen days, and John afterwards enfeoffed Robert his son and heir

to be true by the inquisition that the justiciary caused to be made and that

other services that Walter assigned to the king in the exchange aforesaid,

To the prior of Ely. Whilst the Welsh are attacking the peace and

undertaken, as he is bound, the king, considering that if the money arising 
from the tenth granted in aid of the Holy Land deposited in divers places 
should suffer subtraction by malefactors and disturbers of the peace whilst he is

appointed the sheriff of Cambridge and Andrew de Eley to survey the 
money from the tenth deposited in the prior's church, and to ordain for its 
safe keeping, and the king has frequently ordered the prior to permit them 
to survey the money and to ordain concerning the same as is aforesaid, and

execute what was enjoined upon them: the king orders the prior to bring

does not intend to go to parts beyond sea at the time to be fixed for the 
general passage by the pope, and the count is prepared to set out for the 
succour of the Holy Land at the aforesaid time. The pope has received 
this request with great disappointment, not because the grant of the tenth 
was asked for the said count, whose probity the pope commends, but 
because the Roman church unwillingly perceives that the king was not 
disposed to cross in the said passage, whereas the church had great 
confidence that he would, with his accustomed zeal, have taken the cross 
with eagerness (vivifice prefigures) to revenge the wrongs continuously 
inflicted upon the Holy Land by the infidels, whereof the king learnt when 
he was in that land, and that he would have hastened, as though 
executing the office of a precursor, to those parts at the said passage. The 
king knows by the evidence of his own eyes the calamities of the said land, 
and the wounds that the hands of the wicked have not feared to inflict upon 
it, to the shame of the Christians. If one consider the numerous gifts 
wherewith the king is endowed by divine munificence, for he is 
distinguished for strength, discretion, and prudence, to say nothing of 
other qualities wherewith he is endowed amongst other princes of the 
world, it would befit the greatness of the king that he should show himself 
ready and eager for the services of God. If the king will ponder over the 
miracle in the Holy Land whereby he was saved, although severely 
wounded, by God from the deadly plots of the assassin, he ought not in any 
wise suffer that the tenth should be converted to the service of Christ by 
the ministry of any one else, but should know that it is more worthy and 
fit that, laying aside neglect, he should undertake this task and execute it 
with vigour, thus repaying the debt to God, who as He redeemed the king and 
delivered him from the snare of the hunters, did not fear to suffer the cross. 

The pope therefore requests the king not to wonder at or be annoyed at 
his deferring to hear the said petition. He trusts that the king will 
change his plan and will prosecute with energy of spirit this matter, which 
he is not now disposed to take up, by doing which he will acquire great 
renown and will add to his own health. The pope, in deferring the 
hearing of the petition, has borne in mind that the necessity of the 
passage, which has not yet been appointed, is not pressing, and that the 
condition of the world does not promise a suitable time for fixing it 
shortly, for many provinces of the world are, as the king knows, shaken 
with great disturbances by the procurement of the enemy of mankind, so 
that no damage will arise from the aforesaid delay. 

If by chance, when the time of the passage shall have been fixed, the 
king shall be unwilling to cross, which unwillingness the church would 
lament, the pope proposes then to dispose so concerning the aforesaid 
count and the magnates and nobles of the king's realm and the tenth 
aforesaid as shall redound to the praise of God, the benefit of the Holy 
Land, and the increase of the king's honour.

Provisiones facte in scaccario* 

March 23. To the treasurer and barons of the exchequer and to the chamberlains. 
Bhuddlan. The king, in order that provision may be made for the indemnity of 
himself and the people of his realm in certain things concerning him and 
them at the exchequer, wills and provides that henceforth the bodies of 
counties shall not be entered (scribantur) in the pipe rolls (rotulis armalibus) , 
but shall be entered in a roll by themselves and shall be read every year at 
the account of the sheriffs, to wit each for each county, so that it may be 
know r n if anything may be due to the king thereof for any cause. The 
amount of the ferms of the counties remaining after (deductions for) lands 
given away shall be written in the pipe rolls and the sheriffs shall be charged 
therewith. In which balances payments and established alms and other 
allowances that the sheriffs may have from the issues of their bailiwicks 
by the king's writs shall be allowed. And because the king's writs 
are made at the suggestion of divers bailiffs for divers allowances to the 
grievous damage of the king, he wills and provides that for such allowances 
thus to be made hereafter a view shall be made in the exchequer, and when 
this have been done, the treasurer and barons shall certify the king's 
chancellor concerning the due allowances to be made, and writs 
shall be made of the allowances according to such certificate. There 
shall also be entered in the same pipe rolls the ferms of sheriffs, the 
profits of counties, the ferms of serjeanties and assarts, the ferms of cities, 

* The so-called ' Statute of Ehuddlan.' 



12 EDWABD I. 295

boroughs, towns and other ferms whereof answer is made yearly to the 
exchequer. Also there shall be entered in the same all debts attermined, 
all great debts of which there is hope that anything may be rendered, 
also all other debts that seem to be clear. When the title 'new 
offerings' in the account is reached, nothing shall be entered in the 
pipe roll except those things for which the sheriffs answer and the debts 
found in the originalia that seem to be clear. Of dead ferms and debts 
whereof there is no hope, a roll shall be made and the counties shall be 
entered under their titles (intitulentur), and the roll shall be read every year 
at the account of the sheriffs, and the debts for which the sheriffs answer 
shall be entered in the pipe roll and shall be there acquitted. Also he wills 
and provides that proclamation shall be made in each county that all those 
who have tallies of the exchequer that have not yet been allowed of their 
debts and the debts of their ancestors there paid heretofore and that come 
into summons of the exchequer, shall deliver such tallies to their sheriffs 
to be allowed at the exchequer upon their accounts, and the sheriffs shall 
make deeds to those from whom they thus receive tallies testifying the receipt 
of the tallies and the sum and occasion of the debts. There shall also be 
present at the receipt of the tallies aforesaid two faithful knights to be 
deputed for this purpose, between whom and the sheriff indentures shall 
be made concerning such receipt fortified with their seals alternately. 
The knights to be deputed for this purpose shall send to the exchequer 
at a term to be fixed their parts of the aforesaid indentures in form afore- 
said, so that by their view and testimony the tallies thus received by the 
sheriffs shall be exhibited on their accounts and allowed. It shall also be 
proclaimed that unless those who have such tallies deliver them to the 
sheriffs and knights as is aforesaid, they shall thereafter be distrained for 
the whole debt and that the tallies aforesaid shall be regarded as for non-paid. 
Also, in order that the debts that still come in summons of the exchequer 
whereof the debtors proffer tallies against divers sheriffs may be ascertained 
{depurcntur) and acquitted, the king provides that some persons to be 
appointed for this purpose on the king's behalf shall be sent into every 
county, who shall have full power to enquire concerning such debts and 
also to call before them both the persons paying and the sheriffs, the heirs, 
assigns or tenants of their lands if they be dead, whb have received such 
debts, and moreover to proceed to take inquisition, if need be, whether the 
parties against whom the tallies w r ere shown come or whether they do not, 
after it have been testified by the sheriff that reasonable summons have 
been made upon them ; and after the truth concerning these things have 
been enquired and discussed before the parties, if they wish to be 
present, the said inquisitors shall make rolls of all the debts proved 
or confessed before them, and after the debts have been enrolled the tallies 
thereof shall be broken. The sheriffs shall have in their possession 
transcripts under the seals of the inquisitors of the rolls aforesaid, and 
shall supersede making distraint for the debts contained in them until 
otherwise ordered by the king. The inquisitors shall send to the exchequer 
their rolls aforesaid under their seals, so that it shall be there examined by 
search to be made what debts are paid in whole or in part, and what are 
not, and after examination have been made the sheriffs shall be charged 
and the debtors acquitted according to what should be done by the 
examination. The king also wills and provides that the chamberlains 
shall not hereafter make tallies for sheriffs or other bailiffs to be divided, 
unless they have previously received from them particulars containing the 
sums and occasions of the debts and the names of those paying them, in 
which parcels they wish that such [tallies] to be divided shall be parted ; 
after receipt whereof under their seals it shall not be permitted to change

them in other parcels in any way. The king also provides that all 
debts to which the sheriffs answer that the debtors have nothing in their 
bailiwicks and had nothing at the time when they were charged with the 
said debts or that they are not found, shall be extracted and entered in 
rolls, and the rolls shall be delivered to faithful and circumspect men, who 
shall make inquisition concerning the same in a form to be provided by the 
treasurer and barons. And because the common affairs of the king and 
his people are unduly prorogued and impeded by certain pleas hitherto 
held in the exchequer that do not concern the king or his ministers of the 
exchequer, the king wills and ordains that no plea shall hereafter be held 
or pleaded in the exchequer aforesaid unless it specially concern the king 
or his said ministers. The king therefore orders the treasurer and barons 
to cause the premises to be distinctly and openly read before them, enrolled 
and observed hereafter in the exchequer aforesaid. [Statutes of the 
Realm, i. 69 ; Ryley, Placita, p. 446.]
